You can easily fit a 4" speaker in the back without cutting. Possibly larger.

So far, Iíve replaced ball joints and tie rods, sway bar and control arm bushings, and the end links. Yesterday I dropped the truck and greased stuff up and didnít do a final tightening of the lugs. Drove to get an alignment. Got the alignment and a good 20 minutes later 5 lug nuts popped off and left me stranded. Iíve got AAA though so I waited for them. Then a few hours after got pulled over for no tag light. Also I pressed a ball joint in wrong and ruined it. So my Moog ball joint was replaced with a duralast one.
Pics coming Friday when I get on my computer.

Heres pictures for you guys.



My IN sticker I just put on today.



All the old stuff



The previous owner had tack welded the driver lower ball joint. Didn't realize this until we used a press and cracked the lower control arm. We ground the old weld off and just kinda folded the crack back into place. Fixed.



I didn't do the lower control arm bushings, or the shackle ones due to time and willpower after the others. For another day I suppose.

Questions for you guys.
Went to get an alignment, and my rear axle sits off center from the front. Its got blocks on the back, I'm thinking of just pulling them and raising the front and just going with a stock height. Maybe not stock but this low is killing me and the guy at the shop said the truck is going to eat through tires.

White bumper with billet inserts will look good. Try to get a 96-97 one piece bumper, much cleaner look.

If the back is crooked you may want to look at why it's crooked.

What could cause it though because I don’t know where to even start.

Bought a set of fronty rims today for $140.



It'll be a few weeks till I can put tires on em. Week off work is gonna strain the funds.
Wanting to go with a white with chrome look instead of the black and white. The paint and body on the truck is in pretty rough shape, but whats the fun in a truck with no dents.

Those won't fit your truck. They look like they're from an 05+ frontier and they have a 6x4.5 lug pattern instead of the 6x5.5 that's on the hardbody.
